Grandparent's Day 22 Days Away

Write a letter from your children to their grandma or grandpa. Or if your children are old enough, have them do it themselves. Title it "Thanks for being my mom's mom" or "Thanks for being our dad's dad", etc. List all the reasons to be thankful for them.

Here's an example of what I did for my mom on Mother's Day this year:

Thank you for being our Mom’s Mom

Thank you for the love that you gave our mother.
Thank you for teaching our mother to be strong.
Thank you for giving our mother a childhood filled with using her imagination.
Thank you for teaching our mother the value of hard work.
Thank you for helping our mother to be grateful for all she has.
Thank you for teaching our mother about sacrifice.
Thank you for showing our mother patience.
Thank you for the many nights spent kneeling in prayer on our mother’s behalf.
Thank you for teaching our mother the importance of family dinners together.
Thank you for instilling in our mother the love of our family’s past.
Thank you for sharing with our mother your many special family traditions.
And Thank you for all your motherly advice.
All of these things have helped our mother to be the mom she is to us.

Love your little grandsons,
Taye and Grayson

I gave her this letter with a picture of her with each of my boys.

What are the reasons you are thankful for your parents or grandparents?
Now is the time to let me know.
